Hello my knowledgeable lefties. Any ideas of the best, or a good, charity to donate to those suffering in Louisiana? Thank you in advance.

I recently published a book of short stories available on Amazon and for Kindle.
What would happen if you left your cell phone with private photos in a bathroom at a high school party, or survived severe childhood physical abuse, or were bullied every day in junior high school? What if you were wrongfully arrested, tricked into loving an unconventional person, or had outside forces change your relationship with your mother? How would you cope with the paranormal, or a discouraging difference in how people saw you, or a perplexing murder with despicable suspects?
Unexplored Lives is a compilation of 9 stories that reflect the varied lives of ordinary people under extraordinary circumstances. These situations may initially seem familiar, but life can be complicated. As you discover the tales within this book, be prepared to cringe, smile, and frown as a world of individuals whose uncommon experiences are uncovered.

It's not the 'nothing-burger' Clinton allies have tried to portray -- lives are literally at stake
By John R. Schindler 02/01/16 1:00pm
For months youve read about EmailGate in this column. Ive elaborated how Hillary Clinton, the apparent Democratic frontrunner for President this year, put large amounts of classified information at grave risk through slipshod security practices by herself and her staff. Now that scandal has taken a significant turn for the more ominous.
Last Friday afternoon the State Departments latest court-mandated release of Hillary Clintons emails from when she was Secretary of State caused a new political firestorm. While many more emails were released by Foggy Bottom, some with redactions due to classified materials they contained, twenty-two emails totaling thirty-seven pages of text were withheld entirely at the request of the Intelligence Community. Those twenty-two emails, deemed unclassified by Ms. Clinton and her staff, were judged to be Top Secret in reality.
Since Top Secret is the U.S. Governments highest official classification level, this revelation exploded months of denials from the Clinton presidential campaign that Hillary had done no wrong. The Federal government defines Top Secret materials as information, the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security. The disclosure of Top Secret information is a serious criminal matter that normal Americans face prosecution and substantial jail time for perpetrating.
And what about those 30,000 emails that Ms. Clinton had deleted? Ill spend the rest of my career trying to figure out what classified information was in those, stated an exasperated Pentagon counterintelligence official, everybody is mad as hell right now. The worst part, the counterspy added, is that Moscow and Beijing have that information but the Intelligence Community maybe never will.

With the primaries in Iowa now being neck and neck, Hillary Clinton's campaign and those closely associated with it unleashed a new onslaught of attacks against Bernie Sanders that are highly problematic. We break down each of them.
